The Voice Of Safety Speaking
The newest Lyn Faber video, The Voice Of Safety Speaking
has been uploaded and is now available for download from the Open Source Movies section.
I hope this plays OK...made on a Mac and tested on a PC, but the conversion to MPEG has rendered it jerky and hitching which of course drives me batty...had tried to include head & tail leaders (only 12 secs and 5 secs, respectively) that gave credit to the archive but they bloated the file size to more than 90mb..GAH...so eventually I said "oh just upload it" and there we go.
My previous video, Mascot Mickey
, suffers from the same issue of stuttering frame rate, although not to such an extent as with this new release. It’s especially frustrating since the original QuickTime files play as smooth as silk.
1) Does anyone have a suggestion on a good freeware/shareware QT-to-MPEG converter that runs with Mac OS9?
2) Why would the addition of 17 seconds of head & tail leaders and subsequent conversion from QT to MPEG increase a file’s size to 3 times its un-leadered size?
3) Should my next Mac be a PC?
PS -- all my editing to this post is due to trying to make links to the mentioned videos' Details Pages...making question 4) How do I link a forum post to a video's Details Page?
